Cleveland Browns 2013 Pre-Draft Press Conference - Open Thread

The Cleveland Browns are scheduled to host their 2013 pre-draft press conference today at 2:30 PM EST. General manager Michael Lombardi and CEO Joe Banner will both be available to speak, and this will mark Lombardi's first media appearance since he was first hired. Please use the comments section below to discuss any significant things that are stated during the conference; I will try to have a recap posted later tonight.

In the mean time, feel free to go back and read about Tom Heckert's pre-draft press conference from 2012, which I had summarized here. Last year was heavy on the Trent Richardson vs. Justin Blackmon debate, and at the time, I was firmly in Blackmon's corner. Is there a favorite this year?

This year, it looks more and more like Luke Joeckel will go off the board at No. 1 overall. After that, it's hard to say exactly what will go down -- there are a variety of options Cleveland has at defensive end, outside linebacker, or cornerback.
